The Salish Sea Crossing Debuts Today

The Stand Up for Men’s Health Expedition, aka the Salish Sea Crossing, is a tough and challenging expedition, which takes participants on a 140km, 3-day paddle from Vancouver to Victoria. It is not an easy challenge, but the participants are all skilled riders and are paddling along with a support crew.

Lina Augaitis, Simon Whitfield, Morgan Hoesterey, Jack Bark and Mike Darbyshire are just five of the eleven riders taking part in this event. The aim of this event is to support the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF), a nonprofit organization with the mission to inspire Canadian men to live ten healthier years through positive lifestyle choices.

The Stand Up for Men’s Health Expedition starts today, June the 12th at 5 PM.

A quick word from Lina Augaitis before the start: “I am very excited to be a part of this paddle expedition and cause. The paddlers involved are all amazing athletes, and ones who have strong community links through their successes, adventures, and work. I think it will be a great adventure (which I am always about) that is physically challenging, as well as uses and promotes the amazing beauty and environment we live in here in the Pacific Northwest. Staying fit and healthy can be accomplished in so many different ways, and it’s great to find a challenge to inspire others to take the first step or continue to keep physically active in a fun and exciting way.”
